choc chip, coconut and raisin cookies

I woke up this morning and knew it was going to be a baking day today. I knew we’d eaten the last of the biscuits the night before, I knew we had half a bag of white choc chips in the pantry and I also knew that there wasn’t much to snack on. To get me through the cleaning and major decluttering that is still going on here. So I took a recipe from CWA classics and using what I had turned it into the most delicious cookie ever.

Of course I also used my thermomix. I love to do any cookie or cake in the thermomix because I turn my raw sugar into caster sugar as a first step and go from there. These cookies remind me of ones my mum used to make when I was in primary school – maybe even kindergarten. That makes these extra special.

cookies hot out of the oven

125g butter, room temperature
1/3 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup self raising flour
1/2 cup choc chips (I used white)
1 cup coconut (shredded or desicated)
1/2 cup raisins (or sultanas or any other dried fruit chopped up)

Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. I do this either in my thermomix for 1-2 minutes on speed 3 or in my kitchen aid. Add in egg and mix gently together until combined. I did this for 15 seconds speed 3 in the thermomix. Add in remaining ingredients and combine well so everything is evenly distributed. I did about 30 seconds on speed 3. Roll into small balls and flatten. Leave enough room for your cookies to spread. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes or until they are looking golden. Now you’ll need to leave these to cool as they are too soft to take off the baking tray so I just lift my paper off my baking tray and put that on the cooling rack while the next tray goes in the oven. You should get 3-4 trays of cookies from one batch.

Enjoy! I challenge you not to go back for more. What am I talking about? Go crazy! I did! And you could play around with the ingredients too like white chocolate, macadamia and craisins or how about dark chocolate, date and pecans! Somebody stop me………..

    Love the idea of the raisins with the choccie, such a rich, yummy taste… and also makes me feel slightly more comfortable about scoffing through them… raisins are ‘fruit’ after all! Thanks for sharing this one xo
